Card of the Day - 2016 Topps Heritage : Corey Seager Base Autograph BGS Graded Gem Mint 9.5
It sat and sat and sat some more. This gem mint graded autograph of the Dodgers young superstar Corey Seager stayed on my watch list for months as it's auction kept recycling every month as no one acquired it. I already own the red ink version of this card which is numbered to a mere 67 but I always wanted this base version to pare it up with its red brother. The problem was every time I was ready to buckle down and get it something else popped up that had to get my attention so this card kept going on being unpurchased.
There was/are always a fair amount of raw versions of this card to be had but I wanted a "sure" thing and knew when I did pick this up I wanted it in 9.5 condition. That is why I wanted this particular one and surprised it went unclaimed all this time. I finally had funds in hand from other trades/sales and was ready to finally pick this up as the BIN price was reasonable and a lot of people agreed with me as the watch list was over 15 at the time. Of course I then decided to get greedy and thankfully it paid off.
eBay had not run an eBucks promotion for a few weeks and I had an odd feeling that they would be in a day or so and sure enough I received an email a day after I decided to pick this up and with that I promptly went to the auction to lock in down. A week later I received my card that I had long wanted and now sits next to the red ink variant.
Thank you for reading and have a blessed day.
